  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc bag or similar); and
  • Small clutch bags – with or without a handle or strap – that do not exceed 4.5″ x 6.5″ (approximately the size of a hand).
  • An exception will be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection at a gate designated for this purpose.
  • An approved logo no larger than 4.5″ x 3.4″ may be displayed on one side of a permissible clear bag.
  • Fans will continue to be able to carry items allowed into the stadium in a permissible clear bag, such as binoculars and cameras.
